Surprising Life Extenders

ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) --Being outnumbered by the opposite sex, or starting school on time-two very different things that can lead to the same outcome. We’ll tell you how these factors and a few others can affect your life span!

We all know it. Most of us just don’t want to face it. Our days are numbered! But there are things that can extend your life that you may or may not have control over. A Harvard study found men who live in an area where they’re outnumbered by women tend to live three months longer than men whose choices of mates are more limited.

Prosperous times can add time to your life. Research from the University of Mannheim shows people born when the economy is strong live ten months longer than people born during slumps. Entering first grade at the age of six can increase a child’s life span by two years. Scientists at UC Riverside say starting early can cause adjustment issues which can lead to education problems. And that can affect longevity.

If you want to live four years longer all you have to do is be rich and famous. Scientists found successful people who make good money and are well known live longer than their least successful counterparts.

A few things to think about, before your time is up!

Here is something you might not expect, a 90 year study called the longevity project that started with 1,500 children in 1921 found the subjects who were cheerful and happy-go-lucky lived shorter lives. Researchers believe the happier kids took more risks while the ones who were somber, were more prudent and persistent about their life choices.
